    2012 Chateau la Croix "Cotes de Castillon" (Bordeaux, FR) 5R

    5R

    Medium-bodied wines with more structure and a mouth-feel similar to whole milk

    2012 Chateau la Croix "Cotes de Castillon" (Bordeaux, FR) 5R

    Solid, dry and very tannic, this is a firm 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc wine. Flavors of licorice and oak aging (40% new oak) point to a dense and tough wine that needs to soften. It has acidity and layers of black fruits at the back.

    About The Varietal

    Bordeaux Blend

    A red Bordeaux blend primarily consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, supplemented by smaller amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot, with Carménère occasionally included. While the term naturally applies to all red wines originating from Bordeaux, it is also suitable for wines produced beyond the region, such as those from California, Washington, Argentina, and other locations.
